A solid pitching performance and a well-timed solo home run allowed the Red Sox to beat the woeful Braves 1-0 last night in Atlanta. Rick Porcello went 6 1/3 scoreless innings—yielding just four hits and striking out six. The right-hander got his fourth win of the year. For their part, the Red Sox offense collected just six hits—but the only one they needed was Jackie Bradley, Jr.'s seventh-inning solo home run. Also, the Boston bullpen delivered 3 2/3 innings of scoreless relief. The Red Sox send David Price to the hill tonight in the second of this silly "home-and-home" four-game set with the Braves.
